Registrations of Interest for the 2018/2019 Junior Surf Lifesaving Program (JSLP – Nippers) for children aged 6 to 13 as at 30th September 2018 are now being taken. Please complete the form below for each child you wish to register. Registrations will close at midnight on September 30th 2018.
Please note that our groups are limited so that we can ensure that we run a high quality, and most importantly, a safe program. Therefore positions in the program are dependent on any vacancies we may have in age groups.
Should your child obtain a position in our program at least one parent/guardian will also be required to become a member of Point Leo SLSC. This person must hold a valid Working With Children Check (WWCC) as per the Point Leo SLSC In Working With Children Check Policy. We strongly recommend that you read this information carefully so that you are aware of our requirements. Please also read the information on the Junior page to gain an understanding of how the program operates.

Working with Children Check requirement for ALL parents
In response to the the Royal Commission into Institutional Response to Child Sexual Abuse there have been changes to the Working with Children Act 2005. These changes came into effect on 1 August 2017.

To read the Point Leo SLSC Working with Children Check Policy and Information click here.
All nipper parents who join the club must hold a valid Working With Children Check with LSV and Point Leo SLSC listed as volunteer organisations as per our Policy; ie if both parents join the club then BOTH parents must hold a WWCC.
If you don’t already hold a valid WWCC we recommend you apply for one immediately. If you are offered a position in the program this will ensure that your memberships are processed quickly.
If you currently hold a valid WWCC we recommend that you update the volunteer organisations as per the WWCC Information sheet so that if you are offered a position in the program your memberships are processed quickly.
We cannot accept any memberships, nipper or parent, unless the parent members have met our WWCC requirements.
Thank you for your interest in our program.
